Students

Supply chain managers, consultants, Peace Corps volunteers—our MBA students learn from peers with diverse experiences.

Peer interaction and group project work is part of the Kelley MBA culture. Through course projects, case competitions, and Company Treks with the Consumer Marketing Academy, our brand and retail management MBA students enjoy a challenging, cooperative atmosphere. Our MBAs bring an enormous amount of intelligence and a truly global perspective to marketing problems. Your MBA peers will become lifetime friends and one of your most valuable networks.

Get Real Experience with Projects from Industry Leaders

Our interdisciplinary program develops your cross-functional business knowledge and enhances your leadership skills. One important component of the program is our integration of corporate partners in the classroom. Our corporate partners bring to life topics that are best illustrated by currently practicing managers and give our students compelling real-world projects.
